Up Next: Tour of the Great South Coast

Sally Prowd | Thursday, August 22, 2019

Following on from our successful Tour of the Tweed earlier this month, next up in the National Road Series calendar is the Tour of the Great South Coast. 

The 8-stage tour from Mount Gambier, South Australia, to Portland, Victoria, begins on Tuesday 27 August and finishes on Sunday 2 September.

The tour includes a mix of road races, criteriums and a team time trial. 

We are sending a strong team to the tour, including our five riders who are also in the National track program. It will be the first race back in Australia for our track guys following their two month racing program in Europe earlier this year, and one of their last road races ahead of their preparations for next year's Tokyo Olympics.
